EPSN NBA Basketball
(Formerly NBA 2K4)
what’s up all? NBA 2K4 is
on the way to the PS2 and the XBOX!
The old style NBA you knew is gone, welcome in the new-school
NBA! Enter each match with
fanatical crowds, lights blinding you and deafening music with a
“Let’s get it on!” style swagger!
2K4 is out in the USA in October 2003, with an expected release in
Europe in the third quarter of 2003.
Currently Japan does not have a release date.
let’s talk about NBA 2K4’s features.
Presentation – Step up and join the most anticipated presentation
known to date! NBA 2K4
promises detailed visuals, picture-in-picture intros, a variety of
eye-catching callouts as well as new studio and colour commentary!
Why settle for less?
– The next step up in terms of realistic graphics, with accurately
modelled players bringing the game to life, while the all-new in-game
lighting raises the detail standard for all other games, utilising
realistic self-shadowing, creating the most dynamic look and feel for
every player in the NBA yet!
Showtime Pass Mechanics – It’s your game, make it your show?
Conquer the defence with a huge variety of moves that’ll shock
– Replicate the awesome speed and athleticism of the NBA, humble your
opponents with more deadly crosses and dominant slamdowns during the
quick and fast break outlets, among many other NBA plays!
Animations – Unbelievably natural and dynamic, every single
animated motion such as the gravity-defying dunks, ball-handling
wizardry. Even the movement
of the players’ shorts are precisely accurate-to-life!
Camera Intelligence – Innovative picture angles, based on ESPN’s
broadcast cameras. They’ll
follow all of the action, offering the best view possible throughout the
– Take the game to the next level, and suit up your five players to
take on the 29 other franchise players in what is possibly the most
frantic and competitive season you’ll play for a long time!
Advanced Online Play – Expand your gaming options and hook up your machine to the net. Fast head-to-head play is constantly on offer, you can take on someone from the other side of the planet! You’ll also be able to download rosters, chat to other players with a USB keyboard (for the PS2), as well as much more!
With a major reworking planned for the game it could very well turn some heads this time out, but many past editions of Sega’s NBA series have received plenty of critical acclaim yet have hardly flown off the store shelves. This version promises to be much better than any other version, and not just an update, but a complete over-haul.
